not true. you have people drinking, coming to the city and partying and these party buses aren't taking them home. they're taking them to a parking lot and get off the bus and in the cars and then drive home so there is drinking and driving it's just not here, and the other question often the clubs will take -- fewer and fewer clubs are taking party buss in the city but why they take them there is the perception we're going to make money off of them. i think what needs to happen is education and the reality is people that come from party buses generally once they're inside the club they don't drink. they don't buy drinks. there is often some deal worked out and they're not paying the door fee and if we can educate clubs and one it's more of a problem they want to deal with and they're not going to maikt money off of it that's one way we can help resolve the issue. >> all right. >> >> mr. hyde. >>i think there can be some sort of regulation for the buses. i think part of the problem it falls under the category of limousines so that's why they can serve alcohol and i think the numb

district of the city. local tv stations were broadcasting images of burned out cars and images of wounded people. 8 people were killed and as many as 100 were injured. the main target was a brigadier general, the chief security official in lebanon. he had recently implicated syria and its lebanese allies, hezbollah, for the killing of the prime minister. he was a fierce critic of syria. this will create shockwaves in the entire region. after a long time of relative calm, this is the first big attack in four years. many feared something like this to happen sooner or later and that lebanon would be dragged into the conflict some political leaders have accused the assad regime in syria of being behind the attack. >> for more on the incident from of volatility out of the region, i spoke a brief time ago with a senior fellow at the washington institute for near east policy. does this bombing show the conflict has spread into lebanon? >> it has spread to the heart of beirut. it has been spreading for a couple of months, the border areas mostly. we see this with the sunni-shi'a tensions excel ra
